Flor is a concrete bench presented in two formats, and coupled by means of a subtle play of similarities and differences. The optimistic design of this biomorphic, radial element allows for flexible use in pairs or individually, conserving the privacy of the user.
The installation for the first time of the Flor benches in the courtyard leading to the Library and Archive building of the Regional Government of Madrid, an old «El Águila» brewery has allowed the architects to complete this space and meeting point for users of the different institutions that make up the true and authentic heart of the intervention.
The Flor bench design is based on the concepts of equality and diversity that form part of the studies that inspire the work of the architects Mansilla and Tuñón.
The aggregation of several Flor joined at their adjacent ends or scattered throughout the area creates a constellation of benches as a complex structure that, in itself, created a space in which users can communicate with each other.
